The Amazon Studios series set to air presumably sometime 2020:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7631058/reference


Trivia on the IMDb page says it's "slated to run for at least five seasons" and indeed last month Amazon renewed the show for a second season even though we don't even have a trailer yet.


So, who would you like to see score it?

Looking at the only director listed so far, J. A. Bayona, he's worked recently with: Fernando Velázquez, and Giacchino (once).

Certainly after "The Impossible" Fernando would be an interesting choice.


I, however, continue to be an avid fan of most TV series having multiple composers of their run like it used to be decades ago. Incomplete short list of composers I'd like to see score one or more episodes:

  • Don Davis
  • Gabriel Yared
  • Howard Shore
  • Ryan Shore
  • Conrad Pope
  • John Debney
  • Joel McNeely
  • David Bell

    Joel McNeely is a perfect candidate for all these franchises. He's a chameleon who can perfectly emulate the classic soundscapes that came before. To bad he's hardly gets called upon.

    Part of me kind of wants to see how Howard Shore returning would sound...would he do something super similar, or would he go in an entirely new direction? But the other part of me probably thinks it's best to move in different direction with someone new. Without getting some visuals and a trailer to get a feel of the show, I'm not sure off the top of my head (without just saying my favorites) would be good...

    IMO they should do it the way it used to be done with Jerry Goldsmith back in the day, on MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. and the like. Hire Howard Shore to score the pilot and as much of the series as his schedule and the budget will allow, then pass the remainder of the scoring duties to trusted associates who have the skill to carry on the established voice with distinction.

    I doubt that will happen, of course, but it's certainly what I'd like to see happen! (Again, assuming there's no way for Shore to tackle it all himself -- which would certainly be ideal if it were possible!)

    "David fucking Arnold" would be welcomed, too.

    If it was my choice

    Bear McCreary
    Murray Gold
    David Arnold with Michael Price (It's Huge Project)
    James Newton Howard
    Conrad Pope (Well he was involved with the feature films of LOTR)
    Lee Holdridge
    Debbie Wiseman
    or
    Christopher Gordon

    Yes ! His Narnia 3 is mind-blowing! New LOTR should sound like Narnia 3.
    But there's no chance for Arnold frown

    Well, maybe he'd do themes and have Michael Price do the score.

    This.

    I know there a number of people who would like something completely different from the movies, but I think Shore could still bring something new and fresh to the series. He easily reinvents and molds himself to whatever project is at hand, just compare scores like Dead Ringers, Cosmopolis, Crash and A Dangerous Method.

    About David Arnold, I just don't see what the appeal is, especially for a project such as this.

    Easy;

    Joel McNeely or Frederic Talgorn.

    But I'm afraid we'll get some generic "composer" instead.

    just to satisfy my musical curiosity I would like to listen to music composed by:
    Dario Marianelli or Henry Jackman

    If I hear one synth beat or a chugga chugga, I'm so out.
